garyt1957 I've looked into all the dedicated SS putters. The problem is there's no where to try them and see if you like them. I'm not paying $200-$300 for a putter I might not like. I don't remember if they offer money back guarantees. Even if they do I want to make sure I stick with this style before dropping big bucks. I don't see me going back though. I'm about 4 putts better per round this way.
There's a cheap version on ebay, but again you can't try it. The thing with SS, because the legal lie is 80you have to be sure you can tilt it 10 and still be playable.
The Smart Putter is from Paul Cleeve Australia. He developed the Wonder Putter. I got in on the ground floor for $100 shipped. The Juan Putt I purchased off eBay for $80 used.
I still putt conventionally using a Positive Putter dot alignment on center shafted 375g head for right eye dominant golfers. Eye dominance along with head weight, type of grip used and above all else green reading ability are all paramount to good putting and scoring. What I found is the dot alignment aid on the PP along with dot on ball freed up my putting stroke which made a huge difference in lag putting. Line alignment aid on majority of putters and line on ball made me to mechanical, led to more tension and poor putting.
